This high school is very sports-oriented. Academics matter, but sports are the first priority. The teachers are fine in regards to Common Core subjects, but the fine arts teachers could have been better. Most of participating in Fine Arts included teaching myself. I felt that I was prepared enough for college to get by. One thing I wish they had when I went there was either Advanced Placement classes, or the ability to participate in the International Baccalaureate program. There weren't enough teachers at the school to teach all subjects. I had to take Physics solely online. The teachers that are there are not qualified to teach AP classes.

Overall going to Douglas High School was great. There were many really good teachers who did well in their subjects as well as did well with communicating with their students. Some teachers barely taught classes and instead chose to be friends with their students and just talk, but there were only two of those that I know of. The school was set up really well. Classes were alright sizes, some were a little too large. In one of my classes, there were more students than seats but that only happened once, the rest were good sizes. There was a great variety of classes taught and overall the school is great.
My experience with my high school was pretty great. For every student there is an abundance of different classes one can take. I enjoy taking art and pe classes along with my main educational classes. My school put on many exciting events and dances that brought all of us together and it makes students bond even closer. Luckily for me, I was able to take additional classes like drivers ed that helped me outside of school. After some years the school had some budget cuts and those classes were taken away, that’s something I wish my younger siblings could have.
